"Soldier of Orange" (1977)

Soldier of Orange (1977), originally Soldaat van Oranje is one of three brilliant films in Dutch by Paul Verhoeven. The other two are Turks Fruit which I recently did, and The Fourth Man, which Scoopy covered recently. Whether or not you think his recent work is garbage, the man knows a thing or two about film making, and that includes the realization that every film should have bare breasts. The nudity in this film is totally gratuitous in that it doesn't advance the plot, but does add to the enjoyment of the film, and gives a more complete view of the characters. Paul, keep showing us those breasts, and look for a project that you personally believe in strongly.

The film opens with pseudo news reels of Queen Wilhelmina of the House of Orange making a triumphant return to a newly liberated Holland from her exile in England. With her is her aide Erik Hazelhoff Roelfzema, who was a famous Dutch resistance fighter, and author of the autobiographical book the film is based on. Most of the opening is taken from actual news films of the time, with a few inserts showing Rutger Hauer in the scene. The entire sequence was produced in the style of Dutch news reels of the period, and Verhoeven even went so far as to bring an old news reel announcer out of retirement to narrate. Cut to a fraternity initiation where a group of freshmen are being hazed. Verhoeven embellished this section from his personal experience as a student in the same fraternity 10 years later. The scene shows how this group of wealthy young men became acquainted, and the brutal hazing was a precursor to the rest of the film which is full of Nazi atrocities.

As WW-II breaks out, the group each deals with the War in his own way. Most become resistance fighters, although one who has a Jewish girlfriend (Belinda Meuldijk) is coerced into collaborating by a threat to send his girlfriend to a Polish work camp, and one who is of mixed German/Dutch decent joins the Reich. The rest of the film chronicles the events in the lives of these characters as they cope, each in his own way, with the War. There is topless exposure from Belinda Meuldijk in three scenes, and from Susan Penhaligon as a British military secretary. In one of my favorite scenes in the film, Hauer is talking to Queen Wilhelmina in a courtyard, and sees his friend making love to Susan Penhaligon through an open window.

Maltin says 3 1/2 stars, IMDB readers 7.7/10, and I say solid B. The film is historically interesting, is very well made and acted, and is entertaining as well. The DVD is a little grainy, but does have a full length commentary by Verhoeven, where he talks non-stop about filming details, which is exactly what I want in a commentary. Even those who hate subtitles may enjoy this. It is in Dutch, German and English.

    Can you believe it? Tuna and I decide to do a fairly obscure Dutch film on the same day. As it turns out Soldier of Orange is a tremendous film, a war film without much actual combat, but a moving demonstration of the effect of the war on the everyday lives in the occupied countries, and a stirring remembrance of the struggle between collaboration and resistance. It is not currently in the top 250 at IMDb, but probably deserves to be, and someday may well be, if plenty of people get to see the newly-released DVD. If you care at all about WW2, you owe it to yourself to see this real-life story.

    Cleaning up the hard drive before starting on the next project, so guys there is going to be no theme for the day 'cept these are women and they are, in keeping with the Scoopster's prime directive, generally nekkid.

    First off, two of Ellen Burstyn from the 1980's movie, "The Ambassador"; they were originally posted to usenet by a righteous dude who captures at something like 20 frames/sec and then posts collages of every blessed frame he captures. So your average scene produces n! collages, where n = the number of people in China. I cut up a bunch and edited them a bit before sticking them together again.

  • Ellen Burstyn (1, 2)

  • This next collage is of Hefmate Kathy Shower in Velvet Dreams.

  • Next up, scans of Manshow Juggy Dancer Chanie Costello (one member of the Costello twins) and the beautiful Rhea Durham.

    Last group of scans shows off two Japanese babes who could not look more different. Anna Ohura is positively bovine by Asian standards; me thinks she is porn star in the land of the rising sun simply on the hunch that any nekkid Japanese babe with a western first name does the nasty on screen. Second babe is You Kazaki (as in Oh my god you killed Kenny-san. You Kazaki!): slim and painfully cute... and nekkid. Is there any better combination of words anywhere in the English language?

    Very nice DVD 'caps from "Blame It on Rio" (1984).

  • Michelle Johnson looking great topless (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11)

    Andrea Roth
    (1, 2, 3)

    Here are scenes from the three known movies where she has shown some skin:
  • Link #1 partial bum and nude while playing the challenging role of 'dead girl' in "Psychic".
  • Link #2 serious pokies from "Hidden Agenda".
  • Link #3 from "Executive Power", very dark nudity, but the most revealing.

  • Arlene Warren

    Arlene's biggest claim to fame is her role as Gillian Anderson's stand-in on "The X-Files". Here she is without Scully, and going topless in the Lance Henriksen/Joan Severance pseudo-thriller, "Profile for Murder".

    Nadia Capone

    Soo Garay

    From "A Whisper to a Scream" (1989).

    Nadia stars as a frustrated actress working as a sex phone worker in the back of a strip club. She shows almost no nudity in this movie which is in stark contrast to her almost full frontal two years earlier in "Skull: A Night of Terror". The rest of the nudity is by mostly no-name actresses and a then unknown Soo Garay.

    Cynthia Belliveau
    (1, 2)

    Cynthia began her career around 1985 in some sophomoric comedies as well as the cable comedy sketch series "Bizarre" (this series had a lot of nudity of its female cast, but if Cynthia took off her top for John Byner, I don't know). In 1989 she landed a role in the Canadian television series E.N.G. and later appeared topless in horror film "The Dark" (1994).

    These feature Cynthia in two mid 80's, raunchy, teen comedy capers. Chock full of fart jokes, gratuitous nudity, etc.

  • Link #1 Topless and stripping in "Goofballs" (1987)
  • Link #2 Topless and bare bum in a shower scene from "Loose Screws" (1985) (aka Screwballs II)

  • Gwynyth Walsh
    (1, 2)

    Known in Canada for her current role in the CBC television series "Da Vinci's Inquest" Gwynyth is also known for her role as B'Etor, the female Klingon with the big hooters in the Kirk meets Picard Trek movie, "Star Trek: Generations".

  • Link #1, scenes from the "The Portrait" (1992), nice undies, and partial breast exposure
  • Link #2, from "The Limbic Region"...Very brief and dark nipple exposure

  • Annie Dufresne
    (1, 2)

    A French-Canadian actress whom seems to mostly French-speaking productions.
  • Link #1 Excellent topless and thong views from "Deadline" aka "Press Run"
  • Link #2, more very nice breast exposure plus some partial bum too. Scenes from her first movie "Silent Hunter" (1995).

  • Alexandra Innes
    Jo-Anne Bates
    Mary Beth Rubens
    Michelle Scarabelli
    Nancy Cser
    Papusha Demitro

    From the movie "Perfect Timing" (1986)

    The sole purpose of this comedy is to out do "Porky's" by showing more Canadian beaver. Michele Scarabelli, Nancy Cser, Jo-Ann Bates who are all still acting today shed off all their clothes for this picture. Mary-Beth Rubens who had a topless scene in Prom Night (1980) does the full-monty gyno-cam along with a young Greek nymphomaniac played by Papusha Demitro (who had a very short movie career). Alexandra Innes a French-Canadian actress was quite modest and bared only a single breast.

    Terrible comedy and the sex is obviously simulated. But the nudity is top notch and some of these actresses are shown from every angle.

    Availability? HA HA HA!!!! Very out-of-print. I think the cast rounded up all the copies and had a bonfire to destroy the evidence.

    These are the last of my stash from the ol' in box.

    These first 3 all feature the models topless.

  • Ariane Koizumi
  • Cordula Reyer, this one also features a second B, and it isn't bum!
  • Kristen Mcmenamy

  • Helena Christensen
  • Natalia Semanova

  • Julia Roberts. Link #3 has a decent reading on the pokie-meter. (1, 2, 3, 4, 5)
